Tending to your trees: a seasonal must
With more than 15 years experience in all types of tree surgery, the highly skilled team of professional arborists and tree surgeons at Swift Tree Surgery aim to provide the best quality service to their customers whilst caring for the environment.
Owner Ben Swift said: “This time of year provides the ideal opportunity to carry out many jobs in the garden, of which tree surgery is one of the most vital. The trees are in their prime now gathering energy from the sun to store through the winter months.
However most species can accept a minimal amount of work being carried out without any harm being done to the tree’s health.”
He gives the example of crown thinning, as a task well worth carrying out. “This helps to maintain the tree’s shape, while allowing more light and air into the crown,” he explained. “It also provides the tree with broader health benefits and gives more light into your garden.”
Removing dead wood is another job that Ben highly recommends. “By doing this now, the tree won’t waste its stored energy next spring by sending sap to areas where it is of no benefit. This time of the year it’s easier to see dead wood within the crown as the tree is in leaf.”
As trimming season arrives to native and conifer hedges this should definitely be on the to do list, according to Ben. “In our experience trimming on a regular basis produces a thicker hedge which looks neater throughout the year.”
General tree inspections are another good idea before those autumn and winter storms arrive. Ben noted that many trees require planning consent when in a Conservation Area or are subject to a Tree Preservation Order. “Swift Tree Surgery can offer this complete service” he explained.

Owner Ben Swift says: “This time of year provides the ideal opportunity to carry out many of those jobs in the garden, of which tree surgery is one of the most vital. The trees are going into their dormant stage and this is a prime time to carry out jobs such as pollarding, crown reductions, dead wooding, trimming native and conifer hedges and general tree inspections prior to those winter storms.
“Many trees require planning consent when in a conservation area or if they have a tree preservation order on them. Swift offers this complete service at no extra cost.”
